About Monitoring

Monitoring is just as critical a component of a properly designed audio system as the front-end components; perhaps even more-so. Monitoring is the lens through which we perceive the audio that we perform, record, and mix the music. And if our monitoring systems are lying to us, then we really cannot produce our best work. When we discuss Monitoring, most people think of the control room studio monitors - and they should! And there are a number of different styles of studio monitors to choose from. Active (powered) monitors have taken over in terms of popularity and prevalence, from Passive (non-powered) studio monitors. Monitoring also encompasses Headphones, Headphone Amplifiers, and Personal Monitoring Systems. These are most commonly found on the other side of the glass, as - believe it or not - musicians need to hear, too! Some systems simply distribute a signal that you send out to the musicians' headphones, while others provide the ability for the musician to create their own balance of submixes you send, while they can blend in more of themselves, to taste. As you can see, there are a LOT of variables when it comes to setting up a successful studio monitoring system. The staff here at Front End Audio is ready, willing, and able to help guide you through the myriad options to help you get the results you're after. Regardless of your budget or application, Front End Audio can help you decide on the monitoring solution that will meet your needs.
